    There's tons of stuff to do in oakland, so lon as you have money. Although most of the fun is in San Francisco, obviously. There's a cul-de-sac near the school filled with shopping centers, restaurants and hair salons. Not far from the school is also a large open mall that tskes up several blocls with an Imax theater and everything that you can think to need.

    There is usually something special going on in the city most weekends, and it can be anything from marathons, festivals, parties, special museum/park enter for free days, etc. There's a LOT to see and go do. The school doesn't do greek life and school spirt stuff much though.

    Where do I even start?! Local museums, block parties, restaurants... There are a lot of things to do if you like to go out and about. If you prefer to just relax, the Oakland campus does have a small nice grassy area that you can relax on, or really anywhere on campus where there isn't an event going on.

    See the city!!! Spend time in San Francisco, and not just at Union Square or Fishermans Warf. The Mission is a good place for food and fun and easy to BART to, and parks are good places to be during good weather.

    Art Murmur which is every first friday is fun but most of the fun comes from going to the UC Berkeley frat parties. After 21 there are many bars to go to in downtown Oakland and free events in San Francisco. Hardly Strictly Blue Grass Festival is a big TO-DO in the fall semester.

    What isn't there to do for fun, it's the bay area. For starters there are so many fun places to visit like China Town, Japan Town, Union Square in San Francisco, the Wharf, museums and the list goes on. You could spend countless hours in any of the places I mentioned but my all time favorite is Art Murmur. Art Murmur is an event hosted ever first Friday of the month where artist sale their work, musicians play their music, eat great food, and stroll around telegraph enjoying all the different venues and great atmosphere. My other favorite part of the bay area is all the museums you can visit such as the SF Moma, Dey Young, Asian Art Museum, the Jewish Museum, and even the Walt Disney Museum. If you are feeling like taking in the sights you can even take the Bart Berkeley, and San Francisco and simply walk around. Taking public transportation makes it fun and affordable to move about the city.

    Beautiful Lake Merritt sits in the Heart of Downtown Oakland, with lots of places for people watching, pic-nicking, and local shops. Ferry rides across the bay to different attractions, Museum of Natural Science, and tons of great local art museums.
